Coordinating Committee

The Catholic Mobilizing Network’s Coordinating Committee helps to bring a wide vision and depth of experience to the organization. Representatives from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, many religious order communities of women and men, (arch)diocesan offices, pro-life groups, and lay people with experience in anti-death penalty advocacy work together to ensure CMN remains faithful to its founding vision while developing new activities and approaches.
